About this job

Job description

Quantcast is hiring an engineer to look after the values and practices of our agile development processes across all of our software development teams. You will focus on a cross-team effort to maximize the overall productivity of the engineering organization by formalizing a form of agile development process amongst the software development teams.
The process is your product. You're not afraid to change it, to accept critical feedback, and you are not afraid to try new things. However, you also realize that the process is not in and of itself the goal, but instead a critical force multiplier for the organization. 
You're an agile development evangelist. You know how to cultivate and use a development process and you are good at guiding and mentoring the team on its aspects and its advantages. You know how use the process to help the team make decisions.
The ideal candidate will be highly ambitious. We want you to be hungry to make a name for yourself and be excited by the opportunity to guide talented teams of engineers to accomplish their mission. The ideal candidate is also a competent engineer. You should be able to understand the technical implications of features and approaches and thus anticipate and mitigate potential project issues, such as the need for cross team coordination. The ideal candidate is not a "project manager", as the role is to service and enable the engineering process, not control it.

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Professional experience and success as a software engineer, ideally in Java development
  • Well versed in Agile practices, with real experience using them to organize software engineering projects
  • Organized, detailed oriented personality
